With one of the deeper rosters they’ve had in years, the Buffalo Bills will look to touch up their roster in the 2021 NFL Draft
For the first time in what feels like decades, the Buffalo Bills are finally in a position to contend for a championship and not have to rely on draft picks to give the team hope.
Buffalo will most likely have their first round pick for the 2021 draft, barring a trade similar to what happened with Diggs in 2020. Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott haven’t seemed too concerned about the second cornerback spot on the roster during their tenure, but when the 2021 draft comes around, it would be in their best interest to solidify the position.
A position of need that the Bills have wanted over the last few seasons is at the big nickel or “Buffalo nickel”, similar to what Beane and McDermott had in Shaq Thompson during their Carolina days. Even with having a top defense in the NFL, the Bills could become even more scary with a few additions in the first two days of the draft.
Filling out depth in the latter half of the draft is essential as well, getting key special teamer and gadget players are great ways to add value to the roster with late draft picks.
The Buffalo Bills as of right now have six picks but could add a seventh round pick if conditions are met from the Marshall Newhouse trade with the Carolina Panthers from last year. Their original seventh round pick was traded to the Cleveland Browns in the Wyatt Teller trade last offseason. All of these selections are based off of The Draft Networks “NFL Mock Draft Simulator”.
